STASHA Accepting Applications

Applications due Friday, June 19. Click here to learn more or visit

The Clark County STASHA Peer Education program is recruiting youth volunteers for the 2020-2021 school year. Youth ages 12-19 serve a one-year term (September to June) with the opportunity to stay on with the program until they age out.

STASHA (stay-shuh) stands for Strong Teens Against Substance Hazards and Abuse. Most simply put, we are a nonjudgmental and inclusive group of Clark County youth preventing youth drug and alcohol use, using our words and in our own way. We work to encourage healthy behavior, build resilience, provide coping resources and support to youth in our community. However, within our prevention work, STASHA creates connections and bonds with those we impact, and we demonstrate how connection is the best prevention.

Who is missing out on youth leadership opportunities like this? Who needs to know their voice matters? STASHA wants to be even more intentional about reaching out to youth who are currently underrepresented or unrepresented on our current STASHA team. The group continuously strives to be more representative of the diversity of youth living in Clark County as that is what makes prevention work.

If you or your potential applicants have any questions, contact 564.397.5841 or
